Nope. Republicans think higher education is just fine.

From the article linked in the OP:
Quote:
Roughly eight-in-ten Republicans (79%) say professors bringing their political and social views into the classroom is a major reason why the higher education system is headed in the wrong direction
It's when leftist fanatics disguise themselves as learned professors and try to indoctrinate students en masse, that the 59% of Republicans object.

Higher Education is just fine.

But the far-left tripe that the above "professors" try to substitute for it, is what they object to.

Nice try at pretending "higher education" is the problem. But even the quoted article points out that liberals are the problem.

This is not really surprising given our current culture that views higher education, with the exception of institutions like Liberty University, as liberal indoctrination centers. Still, I think this is an alarming trend. There are a lot of issues with the higher education system in the US today but I'm pretty certain that's not why conservatives are turning so rapidly against it. I believe it has more to do with the fact that conservatives don't want people learning and accepting science over a Biblical worldview and they don't want youth being exposed to the different cultures and lifestyles they are exposed to on a secular college campus. What do you think?
Do you know that Protestant Christians now dominate knowledge theory in Anglo-American academia?

Not that you or anyone else here would be notified of an inconvenient narrative like this by a secular left-leaning press.



Do you understand that they are now in a position to steer the epistemic progress of science for the foreseeable future?

Over the next generation or two, the left are going to be alarmed by the emergence of a unified science-metaphysics, which will be compatible with a conservative Christian world view and which could catalyze a political sea-change across academia in the west.

I think that, as usual, you have wildly overestimated the impact of Christian fundamentalism on America.

Ummm. If that is true, then the Left would not be quiet about it, they would be sounding the alarm.

Truth is even American students are going overseas for college education. Germany has been attracting more US students over the past several years.

And maybe they don't feel welcomed. Look at how Whites are put down, and Asians are put down over other minorities.

Want to sit in a college class and listen to a lecture about how your race is bad ?
Meanwhile you're paying to have that professor teach you Advanced Calculus.

If I were 18 and looking for a school my eyes would be set on Germany where the curriculum is still academic.
Oh puhleez spare us with the culture wars rant.

International students don't care about that - they want to know if they can get a F-1 or not, or if they feel welcome, which has little to do with your whingeing about supposed political biases of academics or the students. They're just here to study. That has little to do with your screed.

The left probably doesn't understand the danger this poses to their representation in academia.

For now, it would just be an outlier narrative to their credo that they control absolute dominance of the intellectual domain.

All the name calling won't change the fact that F1 visas are down almost 50% and colleges are worried about all that lost money.

Which is why the Chinese will win the 21st century.
